The Last Ship, the Broadway musical written by Sting, will close after its January 24 performance at New York City’s Neil Simon Theater. The musical, which never really found its traction, opened on October 26 and ran for 105 performances. “We have been bewildered and saddened by our inability to sustain an audience for this musical that we deeply love. There are no easy explanations,” producers wrote in an email to its cast and crew Monday, the New York Times reports. The former Police fronter had actually joined the cast in an attempt to drum up interest in the performances; ticket sales briefly rose, but, once he discontinued his appearances, tickets sales flagged again. No future productions of the musical, which is centered on shipyard workers in the industrial North East of England, have been announced. Copyright(c) 2015 RTTNews.com. All Rights ReservedLess «
